Remember Sea Stars? It’s one of those games you find yourself playing long after downloading it — especially when the publisher keeps adding new stuff to keep you going. Like when they added a bunch of new characters, and then made the game free. Those kind of updates are nice. Well, TriplePoint client Hothead Games is at it again: this time, they’ve added a big bunch of Sea Co-Stars into the mix. Now you can swim around with a selection of 50 different pets, who will do stuff like grab money for you and hurl themselves in front of hazards. Man, all my pet does is sleep on my mail and throw up hairballs. I think I need to see some money-fetching if she wants to go outside and murder the local birds.
From the press release:
With over 154 million swims started and 1 million characters mastered to date, they decided it was time players invited more nautical friends to their aquatic adventures.
In update 1.5, players will be introduced to 50 different pets committed to helping break records in distance swam and coins collected! All pets can collect missed coins, snag sea stars and clams for extra power ups, and even remove hazards!
To maximize maritime money power, Hothead has also introduced Sand Dollars that can be earned or purchased to access premium items and characters.
Sea Stars is still free, and you can get it over this way.
